Touring Spanish group to Shirakawago

Hola!!! This is the third time that that we conduct the tour for the private groups from Spain. Customers are from different parts of Spain, e.g. Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza etc. In recent years, Shirakawago is getting famous among European customers. Last summer, the majority of the customers are from Spain and Italy. `How do they know Shirakawago? `I could not help but wondered. Then, I chatted with a lady from Spain and she told me she found a lot of useful information in japonismo.com. This website contains updated information related to travel spots, tips, transport information and most importantly, they are all written in Spanish. This website is getting popular among travelers in Spain that they plan their trips by reviewing all the blogs up there. I guess Shirakawago can be one of the hottest topic on the website.

2 weeks ago, we conducted the half day tour to a group of guests from Spain again!!! I met the tour leader, Antonio for the third time. We are very lucky that the weather is prefect and there were snow left in Shirakawago. Antionio said, `this is the most beautiful scenery that I have seen when compared with my previous visits!!’. Everyone looked extremely excited with the stunning scenery on the observation point. Then, we walked together to Kanda house which serve home-made tea to guests. Guests enjoy so much sitting on the traditional tatami mat while drinking hot tea prepared by the Kanda family. The gassho-style house was built at least 200 years ago and guests treasure this valuable chance to walk around in the house. Starting from April, Doburoku (sake) festival museum opens from 9:00-17:00 which is good news for sake-lovers. Doburoku is specially made for appreciating God while Doburoku is only sold in the festival but not in any shops or restaurants in Shirakawago. Therefore, guests in this group also enjoy tasting Doburoku and putting the museum’s chops on papers to bring home! We have a wonderful time together!!
